This event is all ages
After making so much noise on the local scene, in 2001 Denver’s largest hip-hop station KS107.5 (KQKS-FM) allowed Chonz and local personalities Francois Baptiste and Kingdom to launch the Radio Bums Mixtape Show, a specialty hip-hop show on Sunday nights. Because of the popularity of the show and Chonz’s skills on the turntable, KS107.5 recruited him to mix live in the studio for the weekend party mix and during the afternoon drive, making him the first DJ to ever mix live on commercial radio in Denver. Thus opening the door for Chonz to be the very first Denver Nuggets DJ.
Today, with 20 years of experience, he’s the most recognizable DJ in Colorado and surrounding states. Over the years he’s led the station to No. 1 rankings in various categories including afternoon and night host for the 18-34 demographic from 2009 to 2015. DJ Chonz also continues to dominate the nightclub scene in Denver as well as consistent events in Las Vegas, San Diego, Phoenix and Los Angeles.
He’s won numerous awards from Denver’s alt-weekly Westword’s “Best of …” issues including Best Hip-Hop DJ, Best Denver Radio and Best Online Radio show for a daily mix he streamed live on the internet. He was also awarded Best Afternoon Show from the Colorado Broadcast Awards in 2010. In 2015 Chonz was voted Top 25 Young Professional by ColoradoBiz Magazine.
When he’s not on the road or in the studio, giving back to the community is important to DJ Chonz. Especially when he can lead young people to find positive life direction from music. This is his fourth year working with CU’s Summer Industry Music Program, where he is involved with providing scholarships for high school students to attend. In 2017 the University Of Colorado Denver commissioned DJ Chonz to be apart of their #CUINTHECITY campaign where currently Chonz greets you at Denver International Airport.
Chonz is thankful to have a voice to impact so many. He says “it’s a blessing to be able to provide for his fiancé and two little girls doing what he loves to do.”
